Google Drive is a file storage platform that enables you to store, share and collaborate on files and folders.
Within Teamwork, you can enable the Google Drive integration on your individual projects on your site once you have it enabled in your site settings.
Note: Only owner company site administrators can enable the Google Drive integration at project level.
Your files in your Google Drive account will be available to link into the Files area of the project or to attach to tasks, comments, and messages in the project.
You can choose a different folder in Google Drive to connect to each of your projects, as long as it is within the root folder selected at site level.
Enabling Google Drive for an individual

In the section for Google Drive, toggle on the switch on the right to enable the integration.
Once you enable Google Drive, you will be able to:

Files linked to your site from your Google Drive account do not count towards your Teamwork file storage limit.
When the Google Drive integration is configured, files can be linked directly from the project folder to the Files area of the project or attach them to tasks, comments, or messages.
Note: Any user with permissions on the Teamwork side to upload files via Google Team Drive will essentially have access to every filename hosted on the linked Google account. You will need to select I'll manage the access rights from within Google Drive to prevent users from viewing files they shouldn't have access to on Google.
Disabling Google Drive
If the the Google Drive integration is enabled at site level but not configured, a Google Drive option will still be visible in the Files area of the project and when creating tasks.
- When clicked, a modal will open
informing the user that a site
administrator needs to set it
- To hide the Google Drive option on
a project, the integration will
need to be disabled in
the site settings.
If Google Drive is already configured on an individual project, you can disable it via the project's settings.
